oh man. You'll like it a lot. Its certainly a great jack straw, disregarding any best ever talk. Just wait for the jerry climax tho, dear lord. It is the best played I've ever heard. You're version seems to have a bit more character, looseness while still being nice and rockin. I gotta have a climatic Jstraw, never listen to the pre 74 versions. 'cept for DP 31, yowsa!

I love you man. As a HUGE phil fan, and incorporating all those HUGE phil bombs throughout into my decision, I can now proudly say 1987-04-06 is the top dog, imo. I've never heard it played so aggressively yet precisely at the same time. The vocals are even great which is something you often have to sacrifice when listening to a the later versions of JS. The Healy matrix sure helps too. Everything about it is just perfect.

now I need to check out Candyman
